Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An incomplete flint single platform core, probably of Neolithic date. The flint is mottled and dark brown-grey in colour, with occasional lighter speckles in places and a glossy patina. Pebble cortex remains, covering a few of the surfaces. Four main large flaking scars are visible from the surving core. The broken top of the core appears to have been burnt, small fractures and hackled breaks are visible.

Object type: RETOUCHED FLAKE
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Somerset
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A retouched flake which is possibly a retouched core fragment. There is no visible striking platform on the flake, on the ventral face there is a clear bulb of percussion and a bulbar scar. There are long flake removals in both directions on the dorsal face, suggesting a Neolithic to early Bronze Age date. The flake has been snapped before the distal end and has evidence of retouch along the right side of the dorsal face from the proximal end to the break. The retouch is short and scalar, which creates a projecting knotch c. 4.5mm suggesting the flake was being fashioned into a tool b…

County: Somerset
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A crudely worked flint scraper of Neolithic to early Bronze Age date. Sub-rectangular scraper made of medium grey-brown flint which is mottled. A coarsely worked striking platform is visible, with a bulb of percussion and a bulbar scar on the ventral face. The right side of the ventral face has projections due to the inherent weaknesses within the flint. There is long semi-parallel abrupt retouch on the dorsal face at the distal end. The dorsal face shows evidence of previous flake removals from multiple directions.

A Neolithic to Bronze Age flint scraper. The scraper is a fragment of a Neolithic polished axe head which has been broken and reused. There are numerous ripples visible on the ventral face, no striking platform or bulb of percussion is visible as the proximal end has a snap and it is probable the break was accidental. On the dorsal face there is clear evidence of retouch on the distal end and both sides. The right hand side of the dorsal face and the proximal end of the left hand side have abrupt, long scalar removals. The distal end of the left edge and the distal end have longer su…

A fragment of a Medieval or Post-Medieval copper alloy vessel rim. The rim is slightly thickened with a slight swelling on the inner side. The outer surface is roughly cast and covered with soot, the inner surface is smooth. The curve of the fragment suggests the vessel was 200-240mm in diameter but from such a small fragment it is hard to be certain. The fragment is 38mm long and 24.3mm wide, and its thickness varies from 1.6 mm to 3.5mm near the rim. It weighs 9.68 grams.

Post Medieval copper alloy double loop buckle frame. It has two oval loops which are triangular in section with a flat back and inner side and convex curved outer side. The outer edges of the loops are widened. The strap bar is narrowed with lobed knops at either end. The pin is missing. One loop is bent upwards and the loop and strap bar are distorted. The frame is 36.8mm long, 24mm wide and 3.4mm thick. It weighs 6.58 grams. A similar example with a recessed strap bar is illustrated in Whitehead (2003:54, Nos. 307) which he suggests dates to c.1500-1650 AD.
